Environmental Sustainability Network
The Environmental Sustainability Network was set up at Edinburgh Napier during the 2015/16 academic year to aid and encourage student and staff volunteering activity throughout all campuses. As a Team, we're very aware that as much as there has been significant progress in reducing the environmental impact of Edinburgh Napier there's still a long way to go and a lot to achieve. In order to do this, we need the support of all staff and students. View our introductory presentation for an overview of the Network.
The Network, in partnership with the Student Accommodation Team, developed the ReStore project to tackle end of term waste, encouraging the segregation and reuse of a wide range of good quality items.
As an Environmental Sustainability Network volunteer you'll be encouraged and supported to make positive changes to the environmental impact of the University. Working with your friends, team, department or campus you'll highlight, discuss and contribute to activities that will help achieve the overall University environmental sustainability goals covering any of the areas and topics listed on the left hand side of this page.
The Environmental Sustainability Team will provide advice and guidance, including access to potential funding sources, covering any aspect of your focus or proposed development. All Network members are encourage to work in their own time, their own pace, fitting around other commitments. The Environmental Sustainability Team will not dictate or stipulate any time requirements. Initially, all that we'll ask that you attend a meeting in order to discuss any ideas you have and help link them to the overall strategic focus of the University.
The Network will further encourage and support the reduction of the University's environmental impact. For personal benefit, the Environmental Sustainability Team will encourage links with external organisations to gain accreditation and recognition for time spent volunteering.
